It looks like Mars-1 & Damon Soule recently collaborated with Smokovich Designs to create some limited edition jewelry for the fashion conscious art fans out there. Dubbed the Furtherrr Collection after the art collective the two Bay Area-based artists are part of, the line features pendants, necklaces, and earrings created based off their artwork and drawings. Collectors can purchase here if interested. Discuss Mars-1 here. Discuss Damon Soule here.
Arrested Motion was on hand for the Saturday, November 8th opening of “Momentum”, the three person show featuring Mars-1, Oliver Vernon and Damon Soule at Space Gallery in Denver, Colorado. The highlight of the exhibition was a 10′ by 23′ piece that was a collaboration of all three artists (called The Furtherrr Collective when assembled), a piece so large and powerful in texture, color, and size that it feels as if a riff has opened up and the wall has become a worm hole into […]
After dipping their feet into the waters of the Denver art community with a mural a few months back (covered), Mars-1, Damon Soule, and Oliver Vernon return tonight with a full plunge. Momentum at Space Gallery features the Furtherrr Collective together again (see 2012, 2013, 2013) with a showing that highlights how well their imagery go together – whether it is in collaborative pieces or collectively when their individual works are seen side by side. Head over tonight for the opening if you still can or plan a visit through December 2nd. Photo credit: The […]
Whenever some of the Furtherrr Collective boys get together (see 2012, 2013, 2013), you can expect something special to go down. That’s exactly what happened last week in Denver at Cultivate Colorado (666 Buchtel Blvd.) when Mars-1, Damon Soule, and Oliver Vernon combined their powers create this otherworldly mural. With imagery from the three artists that mesh so well together, the new wall is a welcome addition to the cityscape and will stand as a testament to their talent.

Last month, the Petaluma Art Center north of San Francisco opened up an exhibition entitled Cosmic Terrain, the brainchild of Mars-1, Damon Soule, and Oliver Vernon. As part of the Furtherrr collective, the three friends are no stranger to collaborative works, which along with individual pieces, is what this show is about. The cosmic musings of Mars-1, organic patterns of Soule, and the chaotic abstractions from Vernon fuse and meld so well together, it is sometimes hard to differentiate where one artist’s vision starts and […]
Mirus Gallery, an exhibition space in downtown San Francisco founded and established by art collector/entrepreneur Paul Hemming, opens with a group show consisting of collaborative and individually created works by a dynamic collection of artists (that are also long-time friends), including Damon Soule, David Choong Lee, Mars-1, NoMe Edonna, and Oliver Vernon. The kinetic works in the exhibition burst with energy and sharp colors and represent the fine technical skill and expressive cosmic imagination of each artist. Check out some of the pieces in the […]
Last week, Joshua Liner Gallery held its annual Summer Group Exhibition. We were excited about the diverse showcase of talent as this has been a perennial preview of the talent which will be gracing the walls of the gallery for this upcoming art season. We saw faces old and new to the Liner’s diverse and talented stable of artists. It seemed like Alfred Steiner (seen above), Clayton Brothers, Cleon Peterson, Damon Soule, Daniel Rich, David Ellis, Ian Francis (seen above), Jean-Pierre Roy, Kris Kuksi, Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, Pema […]
With the opening reception set for this Thursday, August 2nd, it’s about time we told you about the Summer Group Exhibition at the Joshua Liner Gallery. The attractive lineup includes artists Alfred Steiner, Clayton Brothers, Cleon Peterson, Damon Soule, Daniel Rich, David Ellis, Ian Francis (seen above), Jean-Pierre Roy, Kris Kuksi, Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, Riusuke Fukahori, Tat Ito, Tiffany Bozic, and Tomokazu Matsuyama. If this is any indication of what to expect from the upcoming art season from the gallery, New Yorkers will […]
Apparently, the staff at AM were not the only ones squinting their eyes trying to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse several days ago. Members of the Furtherrr Collective, Mars-1, Damon Soule, and Oliver Vernon, who only recently collaborated on a large mural in Arizona (covered) got together for round two – this time welcoming another painter in the crew to participate as well – David Choong Lee. The symbiotic piece, which was completed at Pyramid Lake, looks like if was inspired by the […]
Not new to mind-blowing collaborations (see 2010), three members of the Furtherrr Collective got together for another mural in Arizona. Painted at the Flagstaff Brewing Company, friends Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, and Damon Soule each added their ingredients to the organic brew resulting in a vibrant, kinetic, and large piece for the public to enjoy. Here’s hoping they get together for more projects in the future. Photos via Mars-1 & Furtherrr Collective’s Facebook. Discuss Mars-1 here. Discuss Damon Soule here.
